I ride my unplated 200 all over.

Interesting stuff.

Thanks for that link Jeff. I didn't know about that area. I wonder if I might plan to do some looking around there before arriving at the Central Rally.

The Driftless area is also blessed w/these small low gradient aquifers. Up until recently it was not talked about. A small stream fisherman's Mecca.

That is heaven on earth Jeff!


BTW, looking for a 3 or 4 wt , 4 piece that is 7 1/2' to 8' long.

All of the rods at Bean are 9' or 10'. Looking at an Orvis rod that is $395 and that's about top dollar for something I am going to strap to the back of a bike. I have a great 9', 4wt Loomis, but it's a 2 pc. Suggestions?

Your prolly looking at the Access. Not bad, but not truly a mid flex as the advertised. The Superfine Touch 7'6" 3wt is the small stream winner if you'd be willing to go the extra hundred.

One of my favorite low dollar small stream rods is the Echo carbon 7'6" 4pc.

http://www.rajeffsports.com/echo_carbon.php

It retails for around $170. Actually feels better than the Access your looking at.

BTW, anything shorter than 7 1/2 foot is a novelty.

Thanks, I'll take a look.

BTW, when Orvis came out with their short 2 wt, I had a chance to fish it. IIRC, it was 6 1/2 feet long and calling it a novelty is a complement.

Some of the finest fishing I've ever done was in small streams in the Blue Ridge that you could damn near straddle that had brookies that went 10" to 12" and were an absolute blast on super light spinning tackle or a 2 wt fly rod.
